Covered Bridges-Seven Views

I thought I’d take a diversion with today’s post and review a few photos that I’ve made recently of covered bridges in Northern New England.

This region is famous for its antique wooden trusses. These images just a small sample of the photos I’ve made of bridges in recent weeks.

Although none of these spans carry railway tracks, at one time there were a number of railroad covered bridges in the region, including the Saco River span on Boston & Maine’s Conway Branch in North Conway. That bridge was replaced about 1949 with a steel plate girder span.

Fellow photographer, Kris Sabbatino and I have been exploring the highways and byways of the region with curious old bridges high on the list of items to image for posterity.
